Where are we and what do we do?
West Somerset Area Group covers a large area from Minehead to Dulverton. As part of Somerset Wildlife Trust, they aim to promote and support wildlife issues in the widest sense through local wildlife walks, talks and events featuring conservation issues from climate change to food production, and biodiversity on land and in the ocean.
The group also conduct local walks which are accompanied by guides who can help with identification and information on flora and fauna. The group is open to all ages and interests and they encourage families to join them. If you are interested please contact the group using the sign up form at the bottom of this page.
Where do we meet?
The West Somerset Area Group is in the process of reforming and as such does not have a specific meet at the moment. If you are interested in joining the committee, please register your interest via the volunteering page.
